Getting through the city safely and reliably: people with disabilities in Hamburg obtain a new transportation system with Heuking

While people with disabilities are entitled to transportation services in Hamburg, the city does not provide these services with its own staff, but regularly issues Europe-wide invitations to bid. With the market being highly competitive, there have frequently been legal disputes over these municipal contracts in the past.

Now the city entered into a framework agreement with several providers. This contract ensures in the long term that about 4000 disabled people will be picked up from their homes every morning and returned safely later in the day.
Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek initially represented the city successfully in a review procedure and then drafted the complex new framework agreement system and the invitations to bid, and, following several rounds of negotiations, brought everything to an economic conclusion. The contract value of the services put out to tender was approximately EUR 77 million.
